BESTeam Features

As part of my BESTeam commitment, once per week I will be posting short features of three of the fabulous shops and talented artisans who comprise the team.  What is BESTeam?  It's The Boosting Etsy Shops Team!  Our goal is to give support and help promote each others' Etsy shops through blogging, facebook and other social networks.  If you are an Etsy shopowner and are interested in learning more about BESTeam, please visit the team page on Etsy or have a look at the BESTeam blog.

Our Home To Yours - Etsy | Blog | Facebook | Twitter

As soon as I saw this scarf, I was in love! I am a lover of all things orange, and scarves, so this one was a no-brainer! Debbie and Amanda are the mother-daughter team of artists behind Our Home To Yours. From jewelry and accessories to winter wear to home decor, Debbie and Amanda certainly do cover a lot of ground! Debbie made the scarf above, the colours mimicking the colours of her mother's kitchen. The zigzag pattern is a huge bonus - I haven't learned to crochet in zigzag yet. The yarn also looks so soft! The orange is a suede yarn, which is that really soft, fuzzy yarn. I'm getting warm just thinking about it!

Ana is the genius behind Solhful (I'm always double checking to see if I spelled that correctly!). She is an extraordinary woman - not only finding beautiful ways to photograph ordinary things (see picture above), but she has the patience and fortitude to homeschool her children! What a woman! Each of Ana's photographs are printed on a heavy cotton art paper, which will add to the luxuriousness of her prints. You can get your photograph printed on either a textured paper or a smooth paper. Ana also takes inspiration from classic literature, which she sometimes uses in her art.

Head Pin Wear - Etsy | Blog | Twitter | Facebook

Cathy, from California, believes that jewellery is an accessory. It's not meant to be the focal point of any outfit, which is why her jewellery design is so simple - and that's why I love it so much! I just recently started to wear jewellery, and the earrings above would be a great addition to my small collection of earrings! I love the orange colour, it coordinates so well with the brass.  These earrings also go really well with this necklace too!

Marisa lives in Uruguay, which is located beside Argentina, South America. She is a graphic designer and crafter. Marisa has another shop as well, which you can see here. What I love about this bracelet is not only the colour (I do love orange!), but it's a memory wire bracelet, which allows the bracelet to fit any size wrist. It would be great when I'm pregnant and bloated! It also makes for a perfect holiday gift - maybe for an office party gift exchange, where you don't know exactly who will be receiving this bracelet - it will fit anyone! You can also purchase necklaces and earrings from Marisa's shop.
